# A new statistic to show how great you are

take the number of posts you've made, round it to the nearest 500, then divide it by 500. Then divide that number by the amount of greenies you have.

for instance. If you have 4231 posts and 8 greenies, you have 4000/500=8, which we divide by the number of greenies which is also 8, which gives us 1.

This gives us a relative scale of how great we are so we can all feel smug.

Post your results here:

actually perhaps it'd be better to do the inverse of that, since this way we have a lower score if we have more greenies

so depending on which way round I do it:

method one gives me 11/9 = 1.22

method two gives me 9/11 = 0.82

to take the inverse of a number, either do the division the other wya up in teh first place or divide one by your anser (1/0.5 = 2). the inverse of 0.5 is 2.

I think we should stick to method 2.

so what you do is take the number of posts, round to the nearest 500, divide by 500, then divide the number of greenies you have by that number

so far we have me on 0.82, triedit on 2.5 and doc on 1

it's like a measure of how many greenies you get per post.

higher is better. I think it's skewed towards the newbies, though since it's harder to get a new greenie when you already have lots.

Judge not yourself, nor be judged by little green boxes. Only one opinion of yourself matters - your own.

Explanation: this is a poor attempt at a joke....obviously it fell flat.

We should all check our circumfrence . Take your posts divide by greenies multiply by 3.14.
Poop I can't try it as I can't see my posts. brb.

OK 1478.94. Don't know how that will play out. This is fun Herm.

Why am i not surprised you'd put a downer on a light-hearted thread. You know as well as i do that we're just having fun here. Obviously little green boxes mean bugger all.

Fun.

Why am I not surprised you thought that was a downer....

You couldn't recognize a fun comment if it hit you between the eyes....

Do you neeed guidance of a plastered a smiley face to indicate humor?

If you are gonna keep up this rip rip rip -- take it up with the mods.

Don't bother snarking at me any more....

hee hee --snarking.

So my number is good?

Yes, Ive been on oxycontin for about 2 years....only 20 mg a day though. But DAYUM the last coupla daays have been rough. Got my fix though and am set now....she double the dose and took away my fake pot pills.

Lets see what I got here:

1612/500 = 3.224

3.224/6 = 0.537

OR

6/3.224 = 1.861

Sorry, the reason for doing this just doesn't make sense to me and I really don't like to compare myself to anyone besides myself anyway.

Since there seems to be a bit of a problem if we don't do it, then fine, I'll do it but I always told my students to only worry about their own score and then beat that. I don't want to step on any toes though and please believe me when I say that this has nothing to do with spoiling anyone's fun. This has to do with the fact that for everyone who is at the upper end, there is also someone at the lower end and I feel horrible at pointing that person out.

500/500=1

4/1=4

My score is 4. I believe Coddy is the only one that would have a higher score than mine.

Oh, and btw, I give lots of green boxes to the "oldies" here, probably way more than to the newbies.

Now, don't be too certain about that...I haven't even done my score yet.

Here's my score.

200/500: 0.4

0.4/4: 0.1

or better yet...

4/0.4: 10

Now, is that right? Anyone?

lol, Coddy, by these rules, your score cannot technically be done. Since we need to round out our posts to the nearest 500, yours would be 0.

4 / 0 = 0 lol

Oh, well, at least someone else noticed a mistake.

I'll just say, in my defense that, I was never good at Math anyway...

Actually, Coddy, it wasn't a mistake that you had made that I was pointing out, but rather a mistake in the system. You have 4 green boxes which puts you at about 1 box per 50 posts which is far superior to anyone else here and yet by using that system, you end up with a zero.

The system is flawed, Coddy, not you!

Oh. Well, I thought that's what you meant. I guess you can forget what I just said in that post...

...except the Math part. I'm bad at it anyway.

Just look at Math like a puzzle and try to have fun with it. Anyway, I bet you're a lot better at it than you say you are.

Daisy/Coddy

I am going off topic again and this apparently is a bad thing.... but I wanted to tell you Coddy - that Daisy is right on with her message...

I would never attempt to do the greenie thing which has challenged all the people who are skilled at that kind of fun exercise. The fact I can hardly do calculations from reading words and pictures and diagrams or blocks of numbers on paper, nearly tanked me in school. Then I was lucky to find out it is a brain impairment
or glitch in my learning process, and I need to have "hands on" or "tactile" information in order to have cognition.

When I found out what the problem was, I was able to improve and use other means or arriving at answers... not always perfect but at least I was able to be included in testing.

We aren't all perfect at everthing.... thank god or we would be hard to deal with in real life...

A little green box isn't a measurement of the worth of the human.... just a fun game.
